I would like to share two links which, on the surface, may seen unrelated to the focus of this blog, but really delve into the essence of woodworking and creativity.
The first, an article published in the New York Times, What if the Secret to Success is Failure.
The next, an announcement that the University of Alabama’s Creative Campus will be featured in Thomas Friedman’s new book, That Used to Be Us: How America Fell Behind in the World It Invented and How We Can Come Back.
I am very proud to say that within the University of Alabama there are two unique experiments, New College and Creative Campus, that work in conjunction with each other to broaden the concept of education and experience. Dr. Lazer and Dr. Hall have done an exceptional job bringing forth a new direction in learning. Hopefully these two articles are the tip of the iceberg. Moving forward and moving on starts today and every day.
